New Release Tuesday

Band of Horses - Cease to Begin

Jim James Ben Bridwell and the Band did not waste any time pulling the trigger on Everything All the Time's follow up. Although Bridwell's controversies have been all over the net, See Licensing to Wal-Mart; and Meating Out on a Blogger, this album will wipe out any smack talk. Oh and
7.7 by P4k for a Sophomore effort ain't bad.

Sunset Rubdown - Random Spirit Lover
Spencer Krug lead vocalist of Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown will be releasing Random Spirit Lover. As a big fan of Shut Up I Am Dreaming, Random Spirit Lover should be a solid release. P4k gave it a very favorable review.

Jens Lekman - Night Falls Over Kortedala
9.0 by P4k, wow. Swedish singer Jens' vocals echo the old English. See Belle & Sebastian; Morrissey of The Smiths. See also: David Byrne of Talking Heads. Many of his songs have an orchestral feel packed with flutes, cellos and the like, almost a big band sound. Kind of cheesy, but at the same time it somehow is very enjoyable. Grab it at eMusic tomorrow.

Beirut - The Flying Club Cupp
Zach Condon of Beirut also brings a worldly sound to the table. Packed with horns and accordions, TFCC will be yet another mood album-one you will have to be in the mood for. I have enjoyed popping in Gulag Orkestar on occasions.

Radiohead - In Rainbows
Although I would not join in the Koolade drinking for Radiohead, I do somewhat dig their music. This release is certainly an interesting story. See full details HERE. To sum it up, Radiohead is releases a digital download release Wednesday for whatever you want to pay. I will certainly download it.

Also released this week:
Fiery Furnaces - Widow City
Robert Pollard - Coast to Coast Carpet of Love
Robert Pollard - Standard Gargoyle Decisions
The Ravonettes - Lust Lust Lust
